    I was reading through TFWiki and stumbled upon the page for Discmaster. A Discmaster is one who uses explosive discs in combat, and I thought how cool would that be if that was in FOC as an ability of some kind, with an aftertouch effect to guide the disc?

    What other cool ideas for weapons should HMS use?

    I've got one. What about a wrist mounted crossbow that fires electrically charged bolts.

    I used to have an idea for a weapon, then I took an arrow in the knee.

    Sorry I just watched a video with that joke.

    YES. The enemy who gets hit gets stunned for a while as it deals damage.

    Unfunny video game references, internet meme material since forever.

    VERY cool. Reminds of Halo Reach.

    Gruesome! It could also have a "lure" as an alt-fire, which, of course, lures the Scraplets to a different enemy once they have chowed down. If you don't change where they are lured, they might come for you or team mates!

    I want a gun that traps people in bubbles and rolls them away. Not hurt them or kill them, just annoy them. It would be my primary weapon.

    I want Megatron to be like General RAAM from Gears of War and have Scraplets constantly swarming around him as a shield, and he can sic them on his foes, devouring them completely within seconds.

    That'd rule ass.

    Fire Retardant Foam cannon.

    It would wreak everyone's shit.

    I want a gun that reverses the target's camera view. So it points backwards but the controls still respon for the character, so everything's backwards and you can't see the enemy. It only lasts a second though.

    Liquid Nitrogen Spray or Glass Gas that makes the target extremely vulnerable to explosive or melee damage.

    The bubble itself could damage enemies perhaps?

    It could make for a cool ability. You press the ability button again while active to send the Scraplets out.

    XD


    The "Optic Scrambler" would be a good name for that.

    It could be used in the form of a grenade perhaps?

    It's not exactly a "strange" idea, but I'd like to use my Melee weapon at all times. If Halo can do weapons like the Energy Sword, why not FOC?

    Pros:
    -> Sword/axe/club out at all times.
    -> Pulling RT for a quicker, less-elaborate strike than hitting the right stick.

    Cons:
    -> Useless at longer ranges.
    -> Only have one gun alongside the melee weapon.

    A cosmic rust cannon; it would continue to drain the health of the targeted character (making them weak to any attack), until their health reaches zero on it's own. It could also work in grenade form.

    Edit: by "drain" I mean once a character is targeted and fired upon with cosmic rust, their health bar will be shown steadily decreasing while their bodies rust and wither away.

    Nah, it'd have to slowly rust away their limbs.
    So after a minute they lose the ability to use a gun because their arms rusted off, or lack the ability to walk because their legs rusted off first. Or maybe if you get a headshot their head will rust off first and kill them quicker.

    A Railgun from ROTF - Suck on that one Bruticus.

    Generic Armada Gun - You don't even have to hit them. You fire at the ground near their feet and that slowly kills them.

    A gun that is like a Flamethrower, except it fires bursts of Liquid Nitrogen which makes the enemy Transformer turn into a popsicle.

    Like halo?
    Cos that would work well in the game

    I would love to beable to do the assassination moves from halo to, where you sneak up behind someone and (these moves would be in TFs) you could jump up on their back and rip wires from their neck , thus killin them or stuf like that which doesn't use a gun
    That would've awesome !:drool:

    Flamethrower. Seriously, there is no flamethrower in WFC.

    Barring that, I'd like to see some of the later G1 weapons make it. Like the ones for the Aerialbots, the torque gun, the air compression rifle, etc...

    Maybe it would trap the enemy inside for a certain amount of time (10 seconds) and it reverses the controls for whoever is inside of the bubble. Ooh, and it is drawn to team members and damages them if they come into contact with it.
